110% recommended - truly unbelievable hosts, clean and beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

First, let me say that the hosts Jacopo and Fabio went above-and-beyond in making our week at the villa a trip of a lifetime for us and 14 others in our family. They were responsive, kind, thoughtful in suggesting activities, and were always offering to help. We have traveled many places internationally and the service rivaled anywhere we have EVER stayed.

The place is just as good if not better than the pictures show. So much space to find your own nook to relax but also many communal areas for enjoying games or the fantastic selection of wine and beer stocked in the fridges and shelves (very reasonably priced for the quality!)

If this place is available the week of your vacation I recommend you take it before it disappears. If it's not available, seriously consider switching your dates of you can! This place was that good.

Other tips:

Have them cook you a welcome dinner (in fact it was so good we had leftovers the next day AND asked them to cook two other night ha we were there).

Do the cooking class (our family LOVED this including the kids who are now back home cooking meals with their new skills. Bonus is that everyone gets to share the meal they cook!)

To Jacopo and Fabio - thank you both again for your commitment to your guests. You both deserve more than the five stars in this review!

2 family fun in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa in June 2016. It was a great experience! There was 2 families our fam consisted of my husband Gary and I and our grandson Cole (10) Tom and Gayles girls were 13 and 16 . There was so much for all of to do! The guys went cycling each am while the teenagers slept in😀Then they could swim , play ping pong or volleyball. We were in rolling farm land great for hiking too. Only 15 min to Sienna w villiages inbetween. But the best part was our hosts Jacobo and Fabio! We had 2 cooking classes from them during the week which they shared w us ......it was a great experience to learn more about the culture from them. All of us would love be to go back anytime

Would highly recommend it, we were a group of twelve, there's plenty of spaces for quiet areas and roudy times, I would hope to be back in a year or two. Thanks Jacopo and Fabio for the use of your wonderful house/ villa.

Simply stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the villa was heavenly! There were 6 of us who traveled from the US to enjoy some relaxation, amazing food & wine, and to celebrate my 40th birthday, and the week went by far too quickly. We arrived at sunset, which was absolutely stunning on the property- made even better by the welcome dinner prepared by our wonderful hosts, Jacopo & Fabio. The home had everything we needed and more- we didn't even have enough time there to enjoy all of the amenities, but the outdoor dining tables, lounge chairs, pool and hot tub got ample use. We also built a fire our last night, which was lovely. As a group who travels extensively for work, we all approved of the modernized bathrooms and comfortable beds. :)

The location was a bit remote and getting there is slightly challenging, but once you arrive you really don't have to leave. The hosts will shop for you (though we opted to do the market trip ourselves), they stock the place with wine, and all you need for meal prep and relaxing. Jacopo & Fabio hosted a cooking class for us at the villa one day, which I highly recommend. We made an incredible meal, tons of food, and had a great time getting to know our hosts better.

We also did day trips to Florence & Siena by car, and did a wine tour w/ Franco Fadda, which Jacopo arranged for us. Although driving / navigating in the area is a little challenging, we had an in-car wifi hot spot that helped us find our way and it was a great way to have some flexibility. For the wine tour, Franco picked us up & dropped us at the villa. We did the Montalcino tour and, while the wines & wineries were great and the scenery was gorgeous, it was a very long day (~13 hours), and we only hit 2 wineries. I might suggest either doing this on your own, or perhaps another tour would give you more for the money.

I can't recommend this place enough, the villa was everything I hoped it would be (and more) and Jacopo & Fabio were phenomenal hosts. They took care of every question and request without hesitation, and made this vacation truly relaxing for us. We all hope to go back some day, and for a more extended stay next time!

A wonderful week in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

I decided to take my family - 9 adults, a 3 year old and an 18 month old - to Italy for a vacation and wanted to stay in a villa so we could be together and have more flexibility. That was a fantastic idea, choosing Podere La Caggia made it even better. From the first contact we had with Jacopo and Fabio I knew we made the right decision. They answered all of our questions, made excellent suggestions, and assisted us with logistics. They supplied the villa with all of our food requests, recommended drivers, and even cooked dinners for us - Including a birthday dinner for me!! They are also available for assistance whenever you need them. The villa is beautiful with plenty of rooms, bathrooms and sitting areas. The grounds are stunning. You can swim, go in the hot tub, tale walks, play badminton - which my kids did for hours - and they are in their 20s and 30s! There is even an old marble quarry a short walk away. Being an amateur astronomer, I loved the nights - stars like i've never seen before , and we sat around the fire pit for hours talking, laughing and enjoying wine. The location is within close proximity to so many beautiful towns and cities; Sienna, Pienza, Cortona, Montepulciano to name a few.

Jacopo and Fabio helped make our trip more memorable and I would strongly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Tuscany!

Fantastic villa in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 15 spent a magical week exploring Tuscany and a perfect week at the villa. It is beautiful and so accommodating for our large group, including a baby and 4 children 12 and under. We included the guest house and we all had our own rooms and modern bathrooms and so private! The kitchen had everything we needed for meals, and we took advantage of the large selection of stocked wines to try and purchase . The grounds are lovely with plenty of space for games, a welcoming pool and log heated hot tub. And beautifully landscaped. A true retreat.

Jacopo and Fabio were so helpful from booking until we arrived in answering our questions and making suggestions. We had them cook two dinners for us , wow, cannot say enough about how delicious the food was and watching Fabio grill meat while the kids were playing and adults chatting under the shade trees a wonderful memory. There is a separate laundry room with washer, dryer, drying racks and utility sink which we all used. Plenty of games including badminton, ping pong, bocce, and more plus lots of outdoor seating areas including shaded spots to overlook the beautiful view. Really, just cannot say enough about the villa and our gracious hosts.

Thank you for a week we will always cherish!
